Hankering for . . . Hash

nickdanger Aug 12, 2008 07:34 AM

After seeing a Diners Drive Ins and Dives show last night, I began thinking about where I
could find credible (and edible) corned beef hash, preferably at a place that serves it all day/night, so I don't have to rush for the breakfast hour. I do recall seeing it on the menu at Ben's Chili Bowl, but not after 11(am).

    The Tune Inn on Capitol Hill makes a surprisingly good corned beef hash, and I think they serve it all day. Its quality belies the divey surroundings.

      I know the Virginia Kitchen in Herndon has hash, and I suspect you can get it all day.

        I've always wanted to go in there; this maybe my incentive

        I think they serve it at Market Lunch in Eastern Market...but probably only during breakfast hours.

          I think it's really good there, but yes, just breakfast.

          Florida Ave Grill maybe?

          A really odd place to post about - but the Woodley Park Marriott does it right - real corned beef, real hash, mixed with a bit of onion. Pricey though - about $15.

            Brooklyns Deli on Darnestown Rd. in Gaithersburg has wonderful corned beef. They offer hash as well -- dare one hope it would be the home-made kind? Does anyone know?

              I am a fan of Brooklyns, and havehad breakfast with hash browns. I will ask the loquacious waitress about the hash. Never thought I'd be ordering cb hash in a jewish style deli though - was thinking more diner.

                I was curious so we went to Brooklyns Deli again and yes, they have wonderful hash that has never seen the inside of a can. They fry up their respectable hash browns with lots of their corned beef, chunked and sliced, and good-sized pieces of white onion. DELISH. You can get it on its own for $4.50 or with a couple eggs and very good bread for $7.50.

                They serve it all day. It's a very nice, friendly, busy, delicious deli. If you go, you won't be sorry.

                And actually, one of the oddest is Chutzpah. The corned beef is great on sandwiches, but whatever comes in the hash is...odd.

                  Bob and Edith's Diner on Columbia Pike. So so so good and so bad for you. You're making me crave some right now, topped with an egg over easy...

                    Tallula has it for weekend brunch, they make their own.

                    I like the one at Market Lunch, although it is hard to hit it just right to be able to get Sat breakfast there.
